Golden Apple Teachers of Distinction Announced in Lee County
67 teachers from The School District of Lee County are named Teachers of Distinction in the Golden Apple process (list attached). The Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program brings awareness to the teaching profession in Lee County by recognizing top teachers in the district. Last week, 30 teachers were announced finalists and surprised in their classroom by business and community leaders, school administrators, the Golden Apple Selection Committee and The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools. An additional 67 teachers make up the top 97 teachers in the process.
“The Golden Apple Finalists and Teachers of Distinction are representative of the great teaching that is going on in Lee County Schools. Teachers have perhaps the most important profession in the world, educating our next generation,” said Marshall Bower, president & CEO of The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools. “We are honored to recognize them each year, and so proud of all they do for our students.”
Teachers of Distinction ranked high in the Golden Apple application process and will continue to be recognized through upcoming Golden Apple activities. These top 97 educators may have the opportunity to attend a professional development teacher training, Collegium for the Advancement of Education, which focuses on best practices and student achievement
